Product Description
How did the Americans at home feel about the United States' growing global presence? By analyzing a political speech and multiple political cartoons pertaining to American imperialism in the early 1900s, students will come away with a nuanced understanding of American sentiments during this time period.

Throughout the lesson students will:

1) Respond to a Bell Ringer asking them to evaluate justifications for taking over a country.

2) Read a short introductory piece about American imperialism of the time.

3) Analyze a primary source political speech and determine whether the speaker is pro-imperialist or anti-imperialist.

4) In groups, analyze assigned political cartoons and present findings to the class.

5) Finish with an exit ticket that asks students to explain how Americans felt about their country's imperialism.
